ADA Compliance for Detectable Warnings

 

In 1991 the USDOT and USDOJ developed legal regulations from the Americans with Disabilities Act. Included in these guidelines are the requirements for the installation of detectable warnings on sidewalks, street crossings and curb ramps, hazardous vehicular ways, and transit platform edges.

StrongGo Industries offer a full complement of TekWay High-Performance ADA Systems, which are fully compliant and right for any job large or small. These durable, aesthetically pleasing domes are available in almost all natural and federal colors, sizes, dome spacing, and even shapes.
